A performing arts group that provides a safe space for young children has won a national award.

FenSong, a music group based in Nordelph, has been awarded the national title of the Love Britain and Ireland Awards for youth and children's work.

The group uses performing arts to help children with autism, bullying and poverty.

At a ceremony held at the Institute of Directors at Pall Mall in London, they were presented with an engraved crystal award and certificate. The group were also given a £500 cash prize and a £5,000 media package.

The prize money will be used to pay for the bills and hall hire of Nordelph Village Hall.
